  SURPRISE !!: please keep audiences out of presentation room during set up and/or until called upon

Seating:  younger audiences in chairs seem to be more distracted because its harder for them to see forward.  Ground seating is ideal.   

Adults Present:   One adult staff member must be present during show for many reasons:  supervision,  intermission, potential emergency etc. 

Distractions ?  Consider: acoustics, nearby foot traffic, loud ventilation, body heat on warm days, cafeteria staff clanging.
